  • Tekna S Line Dressage w/ Adjustable Gullet

    I've been searching for threads on this saddle but haven't seen anything specifically about the new S Line. Of course if its a nice saddle I've got to find a tekna distributor that has a workable saddle trial policy. Dover's is great, but they don't carry tekna. And unfortunately stateline tack has "NO TRIALS ALLOWED" crappola policy. Thanks.!

    I have 15 Tekna Club saddles for my camp program and I like them. I've ridden in an S Line dressage model and found it nicely balanced, but the drawback to any synthetic is the Slippery Factor. No matter how close the styling comes to leather, they just don't break in. So it's not a saddle I'd want to spend a lot of time in.
    Patience pays.

      Tekna are somewhat common here in Australia.
      And there's a reason you see so many for sale here as "only tried on, didn't fit". I've never seen a Tekna that fit the horse very well. Maybe they have improved but they did have a reputation a few years ago as being terribly balanced with some gosh awfully shaped tree inside

        I had an S Line a few years ago and absolutely loved it. I wouldn't say it was slippery in the slightest and it put me naturally in a very good position. The quality was fantastic and the gullet plates very easy to change out. I ended up selling it once my last horse beefed up in his shoulder area as it not longer fit him.
